~ C.S. Lewis
I do a lot of waiting.
Really, a monkey could do my job; it's pretty much the same eight to ten tasks repeated over and over. That's what makes it hard. I could probably live the rest of my life without the thrill of grocery shopping, but I do it every week--sometimes more than once. Paying bills isn't fun. Driving kids all over town gets old fast.
So why do it?
Because after I've brought home the groceries and cooked a meal, I get to eat it with the three best people.
Because when the bills are paid on time, the house is warm and the lights are on.
Because when we drive all over town, we have all kinds of fun adventures.
Because I love them, and I want them to be happy at home.
Sisyphus may have been working out his punishment, but I get to do this job every single day. And it is important.
